Macro Photography

Join me and a small group of up to 5 people for a day of macro photography at one of the UK’s most invertebrately rich RSPB reserves, where every photo you see on this page was taken.

The morning starts at 10:00am with a small group talk and introductions so that we can all get to know each other and our abilities. We then move on to photographing moths that have been caught overnight in the moth trap. Although nothing is guaranteed, it has not been uncommon for previous traps to yield poplar and elephant hawk moths to name just a couple.

Next, we will head in for lunch which is provided by the site’s cafe and is included in the price.

Last, but not least, we will head out to visit a couple of other hot spots around Pullborough Brooks Nature Reserve, lead by an RSPB volunteer with expert knowledge of the area and it’s wildife. I will be with the group every step of the way to offer tips, advice and to generally share in embracing our inner nerd that I believe is within every photography and wildlife enthusiast.

The day usually finishes around 3:00pm. To purchase a place on this workshop please click on the buy now button below.

In order to get the most out of the day I highly recomend a DSLR or compact system camera with a dedicated macro lens. However, macro photography is highly accessible and you should be able to come away with something you are happy with whatever camera you use.

The equipment I have reccomended simply enables you to get the most out of the day.


Although I will be freely sharing my knowledge and experience in macro photography with you throughout the day, this is not a tuition course. The aim of this workshop is to give you opportunites to photograph hard to find species, in a beautiful location and to pick up new techniques and be inspired.

There are many cameras on the market and, although I should be able to help you with most of them if you get stuck, there is no way of me knowing my way around every camera available. Therefore a basic understanding of your camera’s operation is essential.

In the event of bad weather such as heavy rain or very strong winds. I will email you to inform you of the following options: If the weather the following day (Sunday 21st July 2019) is better, you will be invited to join us on that day instead. Or, you will receive a full refund. Please note, not being able to make the following day if offered will result in a refund of only £140.

If you have to cancel or request a refund for any other reason, then you will be refunded £140.
